Description
The Cyclone HE is a light-duty, power-vent, fully condensing commercial gas water heater with an internal helical heat exchanger, similar to the design of A. O. Smith's industry-leading Cyclone XHE models. This helical heat exchanger helps Cyclone HE achieve 90% thermal efficiency and deliver outstanding hot water output.

Features:
  • Helical internal heat exchanger - completely surrounded by water in tank, provides much greater heat transfer surface than standard straight flue tube. Produces 90% thermal efficiency, which saves money on operating costs, increases hot water output compared to standard-efficiency water heaters. Minimizes standby losses by trapping heat in the tank. Spiral heat exchanger reduces scale and sediment from forming on water-side surface, which can reduce energy efficiency over time.
  • Versatile power-direct vent design - system allows combined vertical and horizontal vent runs terminating through an outside wall, using Schedule 40 PVC or ULC S636 Approved PVC pipe.
  • Modular blower - equipped with 120 volt, 60 Hz electrical system (rating 5 amps or less), 6-foot cord with standard 3-prong connector. 2" PVC pipe, elbows and condensate drain supplied to connect heat exchanger outlet to blower. PVC Vent Attenuation Assembly (VAA) supplied for applications where extra-quiet operating environment is essential.
  • High output with small footprint - 22" diameter, combined with 90% efficiency, 50-gallon tank and 76,000 BTU input means Cyclone HE can be installed in less space than a larger 75-gallon unit, with equal or better performance
  • Side-mounted hot and cold recirculating taps -allows Cyclone HE to be installed as part of combination space heating/water heating applications, or any system requiring a recirculating hot water loop. Plugs for the recirculating taps are factory installed
  • INTELLI-VENT gas control - equipped with long lasting silicon nitride hot surface ignitor - no standing pilot. Advanced electronics for more precise control of water temperature and easy-to-understand system diagnostics
  • Permaglas Ultra Coat glass lining - A. O. Smith exclusive process provides superior protection against corrosion. Protects all interior tank surfaces including inside and outside of helical heat exchanger.
  • Two heavy-duty anode rods - provides advanced protection against corrosion
  • Green choice gas burner patented -"Eco-Friendly" design reduces NOx emissions and meets less than 40 ng/j requirements for low NOx
  • CSA certified and ASME rated T&P relief valve
